Nick taught me at a level when I studied at New College Nottingham. He's a vibrant and exceptional teacher, with incredible knowledge in his field of music. I learned a lot from Nick and have gone on to achieve a university degree in Musical theatre.

If it wasn't for Nick I wouldn't have passed my HND in Music Performance, he is an excellent tutor and through his guidance, council and support I gained a greater understanding of the Aural element of my course. I struggled beyond my first instrument of drums when it came to composition but Nick was always patient and kind, explained everything to me in great detail in a manner I could understand which boosted my confidence and led me to pass my modules. I Couldn't recommend him more.

In my opinion. Nick Redfern is one of the most well-mannered, patient and passionate teachers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. In the two years i spent at NCN Clarendon, He was the only teacher that showed that he genuinely cared about his students, and not just the work that they produce. He is not only a great teacher, but a fantastic person with superior kindness and intellect.

As a former student of Nick's at NCN, I am so pleased to see the opening of FSM. I can certainly attest to the excellent teachings in which myself, and many others have received from Nick over the years, including being one of the most memorable teachers I've had (of all time), as well as a superbly accomplished music teacher in so many ways.
I can say now, that as well as a testimonial to Nick Redfern's unbeatable professionalism and kind, patient and enthusiastic nature.

I had the privilege of being under Nick's tutorage when I attended a music course in Nottingham about 17 years ago.
I found Nick to be an amazing tutor who was extremely knowledgeable about all things music. So passionate is he for his craft that he takes the utmost time with all of his students to ensure they understand fully what they are learning/creating, showing great patience and understanding for both the student and what he teaches.

M
Matt

I only lived and learned In Nottingham for a year but I could not have hoped for a more welcoming, excited or passionate teacher than Dr Nick. He appreciates and understands all of his learners from their loves to their weaknesses and encourages them to do find themselves and do their best.
On top of this, and most importantly; he is kind, funny and an awesomely talented musician.

M
Mark

I studied music under the tutelage of Redfern at Clarendon College in the late 1990s. As a professional musician, many of the techniques and approaches to making music that he taught me have formed the basis of my methodology now.
Clear, patient and incredibly thorough in his knowledge, I'm extremely grateful to have studied under this great teacher and musician.

E
Emma

As a student of Nick's for 4 years I can attest his knowledge and passion for music alongside his enthusiastic and patient teaching style makes him a pleasure to learn from, and a truly inspirational teacher.

P
Paul

Nick saw me through my degree and also helped me through my initial training years. Nick is an inspiring and dedicated teacher who not only has an astounding understanding of his subject area, but also has superb teaching qualities. He is a true gentleman and a highly engaging individual. I cannot think of a better person to further one's musical studies.

Nick is an incredible teacher! When I began studying music, I had little experience in playing the piano and minimal knowledge of scales and using different music software. Nick was always positive and gave me the confidence to keep trying. Since working with him, I have completed the music course, gained experience in writing and producing music, gone into song writing and I am now in my second year of University studying the subject further.
